Platte City, MO
Last night we had lots of rain
and lightening, and a bit of hail.
Nothing bad, we were happy about that!
Today we decided to find out
what was in Independence, MO.
As luck would have it,
we found a park named
George didn't know he owned a park!
Of course, his (our) last name is OWEN :-)
It was a beautiful park,
with some nice hiking trails.
The colors were spectacular..
We really enjoyed the fresh air,
and the walk did us good!
I finally got to see some turtles!
Next we went to see everything
as in Harry S.
The park ranger,
who took us through the house..
We had the traditional picture taken..
Walked around the historic square..
and finally had a frozen yogurt..
It was a great day of exploring!
We are ready to move on..
tomorrow we will be camping
in a new spot..
Carlyle Lake, IL
our first COE park!
Nice park that George has! ;-)ReplyDelete
I hope your camping experience with the COE is as good as ours was at Airport Park in Waco, Texas.ReplyDelete
Nice to hear about your escapades today.
I love your blog and enjoy reading about your travels. Glad to see the gnome is enjoying and behaving himself.ReplyDelete
Love you Harry and Bess pose! That's a keeper. The big biography of Truman by David McCullough is definitely worth the time.ReplyDelete
That nature park looks like a great place for an afternoon walk. :) Safe travels today!ReplyDelete
Hope you like the COE park, we love them! Looks like the gnome is having fun too! :-)ReplyDelete
Hope the coe park lives up to your expectations. They are our very favorite!ReplyDelete
Wow, George owns a park! That's cool, so I guess he gets in free.ReplyDelete
Now did he charge Harry admission when he came to visit?
There are a couple of nice COE campgrounds around Macon, MO. If I remember it is Thomas Hill Reservoir. This late, they may have turned the water off. And a nice campground at Hannibal too.ReplyDelete
Please be careful on the road.
